Shot fired at Obama campaign office in Denver

DENVER Denver police say someone has fired a shot through the window of President Barack Obama's Denver campaign office.

Police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez says people were inside the office when the shooting happened Friday afternoon, but no one was injured. A large panel of glass was left shattered at the office on West Ninth Avenue near Acoma Street.

Lopez says investigators are looking at surveillance video but have not yet confirmed a description of a vehicle that might be linked to the shooting. Police didn't immediately release other details while detectives pursue leads.

Lopez says she isn't aware of any previous threats against the campaign office.

The Secret Service referred questions about the incident to Denver police.

An Obama campaign spokeswoman declined to comment.

If only President Obama had had the common decency to be white, this never would have happened.

David, this may come as a complete surprise to you, but people in other countries are a lot more civilized than Americans, and are completely shocked by news like this. You guys claim to be the "greatest country in the world," yet few have seen any evidence to support this claim. Do you care to expound on that?

I never said America is the greatest country in the world.I'd rather live here than most other places despite its problems. I'd certainly rather be here than a place that the best thing it offers is hockey pucks!

Really Christian?  I guess you missed what is going on in Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and other countries?  Or the Swedish massacre last year?  The Middle East and North Africa?   Sri Lanka?  India?  Central Africa? 

It many come as a shock to you Christian, but in a nation of 310 millions there are going to be incidents.  Including political incidents. And everything is not about race.  Despite continuing claims to the contrary by white liberals.
